this piece is not for everyone but if it is for you you'll never see another like it and it will stand out. People will ask what IS that and you'll say a snake and they will go "eek oooh.... that's just plain wierd man.". And you'll laugh and say "yep that's me alright."

I took an old tin can...broken blue bottle...snake skin...rusty washer...fishin weight..copper energy spiral and some old ball chain and smooshed and textured and wired and wrapped it all up but did not tie a bow, that would be too foofy.

I made this in a workshop with Bob Ebendorf who is the grandfather of found object jewelry. He loves rusty things like me and I learned that these old things have a wabi sabi kinda beaurty, esp old tin cans (Goggle him and see how he works his magic on them too).

He taught me to NOT to glue stuff because in jewelry makin' glue is forbodden. Well a little bit is ok to hold something in place, like a photo or a snake skin, before you rivet or wire it together.


****About this OOAK found object assemblage piece

i consider thie piece an amulet or talisman evoking the power, energy and protection of the serpent or nagini. I n minoan, incan, and hindu mythologies, the snake is worshipped for it's powers of healing, fertility, prosperity and grounding in the earth. snake stands for both 'destruction' and 'regeneration' with the shedding of the skin before rebirth.

all handmade with 90% recycled and salvaged materials: tin can lid, bottom piece of a broken antique blue bottle, some rusty metal sheet, a fishing weight, a large fender washer, and a naturally mummified snake head. all pulled together with copper sheet and wire. back is just as interesting as the front with a large copper spiral against the crinkled can back.


Comes on a large ball chain with big latch clasp. Chain is 28" long but can be easily shortened upon request. The pendant is 2" wide and 3" long not including the bail. No glue used in the construction except for a tad inside to hold the snake in place. All is done with cold connections - wired and rivited together. Metal has been sealed with jeweler's wax.

Piece is Signed by the artist and is a very unique and unusual piece that is destined for that special and unusual person, guy or girl, this piece is unisex.
